    Cricketweb Balloon Debate

    Ok, so the issue/scenario is simple.

    I invite you all to imagine that we, the members of Cricketweb, are flying in a hot-air-balloon on a very important journey to somewhere or other. However, regrettably, due to our tremendous weight, the balloon is sinking.

    Calculations have shown that we will not reach our destination and, even worse, we will all die, if we do not throw one person out of the balloon. If we are to throw just one member out of the balloon, however, we will be guaranteed to reach our destination.

    Please put forward your case for not being ejected from the balloon, along with a nomination for who you believe ought to be ejected.

    (N.B. I cannot be ejected from the balloon because I am the only one who knows how to pilot it.)

    I should be retained because my optimism will rub off in those around me, giving hope to all. We will survive!

    grecian, therefore, has to go on the same logic, no room for negative Cornish folk in this balloon sadly.

    Also Phlegm almost got himself shot by a crazy NZ farmer, apparently. If he'd been successful we wouldn't have this issue at all.

    My case to not be thrown out is that I am also a qualified balloon pilot.

    I nominate Sledger to be thrown out since I will be replacing him.

    Could get rid of PEWS I guess. Is a sentient computer really alive?


    However, why don't we wait until the balloon gets suitably close to the ground and allow one member to jump out and walk the remainder of the journey, hence solving all our problems without resorting to murder?

    Everyone who has displayed an inability to read the rules laid out in the OP is a prime candidate for expulsion

    Most of you, as it happens. Feeling nice and secure as we speak

    Can't be a coincidence that the couple of guys claiming to be indispensable balloon pilots are the ones full of hot air.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!


    'You will look very silly said Mr Salteena with a dry laugh.
    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'
